The International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR) is a world-class and internationally acclaimed academic research centre based in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London.
Working across a number of different academic disciplines and in several languages, ICSR conducts thematic research on some of the world’s most pressing issues. Our researchers are often among the first to discover new trends, identify emerging patterns, and have harnessed the capacity of ‘big data’ to bring an empirical understanding to the study of international security and terrorism issues.
Our research is not just evidence-led and underwritten by rigorous academic methods but is also developed with both government and industry in mind. As a result, our findings always have a sharp policy focus, allowing practitioners to better understand how academic research can be implemented in the real world.
